Disclaimer: Sometimes my practise is compromised by my ability to stay open towards learning, this is offcourse my personal issue and not worth debating here, so I would like to ask what you people think is a good framework for learning and practising Aikido in a positive spirit ? (without diving too deep into personal and psycological themes, I´m talking about the framework, not our individual idiosyncrasies)
IMHO, it is our individual psychological idiosyncracies that creates our learning framework in Aikido and life.
Mind open, I learn.
Mind shut, I don't
Perhaps you disclaimer is the answer to your question? Perhaps its because we dis-claim the opportunity and experience that we fail to learn from it?
